    Hi all, just joined and have looked for a while for an answer to no avail, so signed up here to try to find out what is on the sensor and if I can rectify the problem.
    I have don a white test at F16 and ISO 100 with manual focus and when I blow up the image I get this? can anyone help and explain what it is what would caused it and can I get rid of it? hairlines on sensor - Copy.JPG Thanks everyone

    you should be able to see that with your naked eye if you lock the mirror up. it appears like a cracked screen -- but I really think it's just hair. you need a good cleaning with a wet sensor swab.

    It has a like-a-fake name VSGO and made in China, but i use these swabs for couple of years.

    They have APS, APS-C, and MFT swabs. It's a high quality product.
    The only thing you need to know: the less liquid you apply - the better for your sensor.
    1-2 drops is more than enough. So you need 2 swabs a 2 drops of a liquid cleaner for a one cleaning session.

    I like the VSGO over Eclipse personally.

    Looks like plain old dust and threads of fuzz, to me. See my two threads on the subject of cleaning sensors. It's not that big a deal, IMO.

    Cleaning: A Rite Of Passage? (I Failed) (Then partially succeeded.)

    Cleaning: A Rite Of Passage II (Success!)

    I've since checked my sensor twice, and each time found dust spots and/or threads on it. (This despite the fact I vacuum twice-a-week, dust thoroughly once-a-week and am careful to keep the camera body pointing down when I change lenses.) Each time a few quick shots with the Rocket, with the front of the camera pointing down, cleared it out.
